Children’s song, U.S.A.

“Skidamarink” is a popular preschool song.  The initial version of the song, originally titled “Skid-dy-mer-rink-adink-aboomp” or “Skiddy-Mer-Rink-A-Doo” (as a gibberish the tittle has various spellings) was written by Felix F. Feist (lyrics) and Al Piantadosi (music) for the 1910 Charles Dillingham Broadway production “The Echo.” In Canada, the song was popularized by the band Sharon, Lois & Bram, who first released it on their debut album “One Elephant, Deux Elephants” and then sang it on The Elephant Show. The song had been discovered for the band by Lois Lilienstein, who had asked her cousin’s daughter if she knew any good songs; the girl sang ‘Skinnamarink’, which she had heard at a camp she had just been to. None of the band members knew the origins of the song,

“Skidamarink” began appearing on many song collections for children’s shows in the 1980s. One version appeared on the Australian show Bananas in Pyjamas.
